Monthly Allotment:

The monthly allotment is the number of text messages that can be sent during the month. Text In Church only counts outgoing text messages towards your allotment. Each text message sent over your monthly allotment will just be 3 cents per message; you will be charged for that on your normal monthly invoice date.

After Hours Reply:

An After Hours Reply is an automated text message that sends in response to any incoming text message during a set period of time. Learn how to enable your After Hours Reply here!

Account User:

An Account User will only have access to the 10-digit phone numbers and Groups set by an Admin level User. Users will only be able to view and adjust settings on the Groups they are assigned to. Their inboxes will contain any messages that are sent to the phone number that they have access to. Learn more about User permissions here!

Account Admin:

An Account Admin is a level of User who will have access to all 10-digit phone numbers on the account, Groups, people, and messages, as well as the ability to assign permissions to other Users. Admin level Users are the only Users allowed to create Groups, edit billing information, or make changes to the subscription. You can set an unlimited number of Users to be Admins. Learn more about User permissions here!

Contact Custom Fields:
